9:11am
9:12am
9:13am
a new tell-all book about president barack obama's advisors comes out on monday. it depicts turf battles inside the white house. the book is by bob woodward. and doug luzader has a preview of the book. >> reporter: for months now reporters bob woodward has been investigating the obama administration and some of the first details are starting to come out. when president obama announced his new afghanistan strategy late last year, he sounded resolute. >> as commander and chief i have determined it is in our vital national interest to send an additional 30,000 troops to afghanistan. >> reporter: but the president's composure may have portrayed what was happening
9:14am
behind the scenes. for even holbrook said the strategy can't work. it's one of the revelations in woodward's new book. the latest work from the washington post investigator reporter hasn't been released yet but on preorder it's already a best seller on amazon.com. the new york times obtained a copy and there are enticing nuggets about the sniping within the obama administration. in one instance petraeus called senior political advisor david axelrod a complete spin doctor. but most of the focus has been on the afghanistan deliberation. when the president was asked why he wanted to set a firm top withdraw timeline, he is reported to say, i have to say that. i can't let this be a war without end and lose the whole democratic party. and when more troops were asked for, he was angry. the kurt reply, i'm done doing this.
9:15am
and the white house did cooperate for this book and at the very least obama's cars will get a lot of attention. there are already 630,000 copies in print. in washington, doug luzader, fox news. >> more than half of independent voters in a recent survey said they voted for barack obama, but as mid-term election as poach they're leaning heavily toward republican candidates. near half of independent voters are still on the fence for who they will vote for. and here is heather higgins that did the survey. and your organization focuses on getting moderate and conservative information out. >> we try to -- even though we are lively a women's group, we don't do the social issues it's all about economic policy,
9:16am
defense, until the ago security, education policy. there is a broad range of issues that speak to that. >> and this survey getting a lot of attention and republicans and democrats alike need to take note of some of the findings you came up with. let's talk about some. >> we used democratic pollster doug shown. it was on he that clinton relied. he's made a life long study of this segment of the population and we thought we would get much more thoughtful, in-depth responses because this is 150- question survey bracketed on either side by focus groups and special reports on the website and a bunch of articles written about it so they can go into it
9:17am
in depth. but there is a big shift occurring in that segment of the population. and these are all likely voters. it is really relevant. they are very discouraged by the policies they see. dug said he has never soon warning numbers like this that sort of -- more than three to come, they are moving in a direction less likely to vote for it. among those likely to vote are republicans. and this is despite not liking either party. >> one of the things that was striking to me, and it's an opinionated group, very well- informed group and they're leaping toward republicans but they don't like what the republicans are doing either. >> they dislike the republicans, they dislike the republican leadership but they dislike the democrats more. and if you go into the
9:18am
questions and the way they are written. they are not only upset about the economy, 49% feel the democrats pursued the wrong policies but they think they pursued policies that make it worse. this is a group that believes she should be cutting government spending and taxes and not doing stimulus on infrastructure. we wasn't back and tested that and 55% were adamantly opposed to that. but 89% said government should be going on a diet. so there is a very strong belief there. there is also the layers with that, a real belief that the government has not only become too expensive, it's become too intrusive. they want individuals to have more control of their choices, their lives. they want that the growth in the economy come more from what individuals can do and allowing them to do it rather than letting what government can do. that comes out a lot. >> i suppose the good news for either party is that within
9:19am
that block of voters, a significant percentage say they still haven't decided which way they will vote. >> 40% say they haven't decided. and there are other sleeper issues in there that are surprising. and people will enumerate the views they think are important. but guess where the two two issues were. say you agrees with the -- agreed with the candidate except for one issue? >> taxes. >> you would you have thought. that was the third. the first missed was the health care reform and the second was the ground zero mosque. and interestingly the ground zero mosque, only 20% were from the northeast. and so it's an issue that has taken on a values marker. are you listening to how we
9:20am
feel aspect to it. and the hillary clinton one, with the 48% saying they agree with you, they still won't vote for you. if you go down into it, 16% are supportive, and 83% are against it. so that is an issue playing heavily in a lot of elections. >> i have to say it's a fascinating pole and we'll link your website to our website. and we've done that at myfoxdc.com. and anyone interested in this needs to look into the numbers because they are fascinating. thank you very much for coming in. >> my pleasure. >> allison, back to you. breaking news in lorton, virginia. sky fox is over the scene of a townhouse fire in the 9,000 block of haggle circle. there are reports of people unaccounted for at this time. we have crews headed to the scene and we'll update the story as we get more information in. it's 9:20, and coming up,

9:31am
we'll continue to be around unseasonable heat. so all in all not a bad looking forecast. as we get into the first couple of days of fall, but 90 this afternoon, mostly sunny and hot. humid for this time of year. it won't reach july and august standards. 93 is your daytime high with winds out of the north and west at 5 miles per hour. 70 in town. mid-60s outside of the beltway. it could be a shower or thunderstorm. and then things quiet down overnight. the next couple of days will be hot and humid with highs in the low 90s. overnight lows in the 70s. so it will feel like august around here. and then sure enough the september weather reappears for the weekend. maybe only showers. that's a check of your weather.

9:34am

9:37am
sosaying. and that's a little thing to make us watch. >> well it's interesting because there was a whole in depth conversation about this. and i think -- we look at it in a couple of different ways. first of all, we believe in partnership and equality on all levels. and when it gets to marriage, we start getting into our religious beliefs and our personal conflicts about that and we were just open enough to smore that on the shore. and you'll see that one of or planners is educating us on the background and history of it. my husband's sister is gay and has been in a committed partnership. and while it doesn't effect us directly, we still care. and for us, from a health care issue we celebrate the religious with the equal.
